This school is terrible. When you have a problem the principal doesn't want to communicate with you. The teachers and principal allow bullying. The teachers do not contact you if they you child has a need. My child broke his arm and his third grade teacher didn't even want to help him take his chair off the table. I has to contact the school board just to meet with the principal. I would not recommend this school at all.
I am surprisingly pleased with Parkwood. My son is in Kindergarten. He is struggling. My son has special needs and the genuine care and concern by his teachers and therapists is wonderful. They communicate VERY well with me and often point out issues and suggest strategies for improvement. They are open to my suggestions as well. They want him to succeed.
We've been at Parkwood for four years now, and it just gets better and better each year. The new principal is young, kind, and enthusiastic, plus has wisdom and understanding beyond his years. The teachers are wonderful - they really work with students as individuals, keeping the best interest of each student at heart rather than doing what's convenient or easy. I've been amazed at teachers' flexibility across the board. I highly recommend Parkwood!
I love this school, this is the first year my kids have been in public schooling. The teachers and staff are very pleasant and approachable. They truly care about the students education and well being.
